Posted 19 August 2014 - 05:10 AM

I know it was mentioned in the course of this thread, but I don't know of a topic in the Feature/Module request forum, so here goes…

 

I'd love to see the missing volumes in Word Biblical Commentary in Accordance! I know there are difficulties with the rights transitioning to Zondervan, a new revised edition of Joshua coming late this year, the last Job volume not in an e-edition, yet, etc.

 

On the other hand, the revised Psalms 1–50 volume is a decade old (and has some very helpful "catch-up" material from Tate), and the volume on Judges is only two years younger. Surely there are electronic versions of these out there somewhere?

 

I was quite happy to pick up the set in the recent sale knowing that some volumes would only come along later, and likely at an update price. But please know that they are eagerly anticipated when they come!

 

Thanks for your work,

Tony

Any chance of an update on this? I'm teaching Psalms next semester and would love to have the updated Pss 1–50 volume. Thanks!

New volumes such as 2 Cor Revised won't initially be offered for individual purchase, right? Will buying the full OT or NT set be the minimum requirement if wanting to get some volumes quickly? I don't have any of the volumes in any Bible Study software (nor any print volumes).


Please SEE THIS recent LINK about Bible versions: https://www.christia...curate.7926578/ ... I use Confraternity Version a lot (both OT and NT). Exceptions/changes: Beck 1976 for GJn 8:32, 2004 GNT 3rd Ed. UK-English for Dt, NIV11-GKE for Isa also as a print journaling Bible; and I've added NIV78UK to regular use as well as NASB71 and 72 - these largely instead o the NIV84, RSV and NASB77. Additional versions I now both have and use: 1958 Westminster Version, 1985 NJB (two copies of which I like the older typesetting), 1970 NEB (in a four version parallel Bible), 1989 REB (beater HCs and white leather). (I recommend also a FB group for The Real Douay-Rheims 1610/1582 (purchasable from lulu.com))
NPP and English translations and commentaries as well as as a bit about learning the original languages: https://www.christia...posts/72219172/
Commentaries I both have and recommend as I don't regret my purchases - for the most part unspecified regarding which platform: https://community.lo...795.aspx#830795
I think the best Accordance base is to buy HALOT (and BDAG) used, and then upgrade to Hebrew Pro. I have never bought a Collection with actual content but am holding on to the working configuration I have so far and am going to buy version 13 Hebrew Pro. /decided on Apr. 6. 2018:
acchebrewpro.without.versionnumber.jpg
I'm growing only my Accordance and print libraries (EDIT March 28. 2018: I now really have quit altogether placing new orders elsewhere) and printed matter nowadays only through the sites biblio and alibris. In fact I occasionally duplicate things, depending on price. I don't buy Collections/base-packages at all, to me an OK print library is a Collection/base-package and is bragging-rights, a mid-size Collection would not be!! I have the Urantia Book now, rebound in leather and would read it together with someone. Books copyrighted in the most recent Years (2011 and later) have to be truly exceptional for me to buy them - this is a strategy I'm going to stick to - I do buy newer books but they are among the expensive purchases. I very rarely have to add any lexicons or Bible Dictionaries, I access them wherever, under Accordance I have bought HALOT and BDAG used and am subscribing to the DCH in print revised Edition. Otherwise I prefer BAGD actually which I have under L6.9. The best One-Volume Bible commentary is Oxford Bible Commentary.
NAB70 OT and L6 functionality including Chineze (which I don't speak/read) under spare account.
The Oxford Bible Commentary under other one pretty large current account that is the one I actually use. /Oct. 16. 2017 Edited Jan. 14. 2018. 

yesterday was 2 years since I returned from an archaeological trip to Turkey. /Apr 16. 2016 A bit of interest in Akkadian or Babylonian. /Apr. 2016
The toughest computer I have is: 8GB W7 i3 3110m 3rd gen Ivy Bridge (since it's W7 Professional and huge battery that actually can be gripped while carrying it open + a second "slice" battery) - on which I have Accordance 10, 1TB SSD of which only a small fraction is filled. | Until 1½ Years ago I had: 8GB W10 AMD FX-7600P (since it's AMD:s best laptop CPU - I LOVE and recommend only AMD). 
My desktop has the excellent value for money G2030 CPU Ivy Bridge - it's the one on which I have Accordance 12 Starter installed, suitable amount of RAM. /March 28. 2018
For satetite commuting a very old laptop just for emailing, dating sites, browsing for gear and tools for my Sole trader firm but not for Bible Study softwares, with graphics driver last version from 2009, Core 2 Extreme CPU, 4GB RAM (maxed), SSD 128 GB, three very old batteries.

I notice that Acts is missing from the WBC NT set. Will this and other missing volumes be added soon? Got a shock when I went to the commentary to do some work on Acts and found it wasn't there.

Actually, the Acts volume(s) have not yet been published. The author is also an Accordance user. :)

Might explain the price. Books retrieved via time-travel appreciate in value exponentially!

Before replying I double-checked to make sure I had the most recent information, and also noticed that Amazon listing. I am not sure what that is. But, it is definitely not a legitimate copy of the Acts volume, and should not be used to gauge whether it is complete.

I have no idea how close to complete Acts may be but I do know it is not yet released. Nice to know the Author is an Accordance user but unless he chooses to pipe up we will just have to be satisfied with not yet available... I remember someone in another user forum stated he was close friends with the author and acts was over half done.. that was a couple years ago.

Well, I met him 8 years ago at Tyndale House when I was there and he was working on it then, too. ;)

Oh well. Craig Keener's commentary on Acts (3 volumes) is complete and available as an etext in some applications. Maybe Accordance can offer that. 

 

I once had a parishioner who took forever to complete a commentary on Mark. His publisher finally rescinded his contract for non-performance.

I just checked on Keener's commentary. My information is that volume three won't be released until Fall 2015.

If you really need them, most of the newer volumes are available on competing software platforms (revised WBC Psalms 1-50, updated Anchor Revelation, WBC Job Part 2, NICOT Psalms, etc). Personally, I'm not a fan of the software alternatives but I've had to buy a number of one-off volumes for work I was doing despite owning the sets in Accordance.
